He had a 7 yesterday on the 1st hole par 4.
He had 120yds to the pin after his tee shot sitting in the fairway.

I don't think I've seen a 28 handicapper do that.
Disgraceful play

We must get a round in..... I managed a 7 last weekend from a cracking drive that left me 100 yards to the pin.... :o

OP, I don't think it's a case of just putting it down to the arrows.
The arrows themselves would have taken a while to get used to, and if that was all he had to deal with, then I think he would have gotten that well sorted by now.

150th - not as bad as 151st, but not as good as 149th.

1st - better than everyone else.

Definitely the Indian. He's had a lot of off the course distractions. He was a superstar in the media before he was a superstar on the course and he was seriously affected by it. Huge deal with Nike and winning a few majors attracts serious pressure and expectation. Then there's the break up and a high profile girlfriend, new clubs, new agent, new house in the US, the Olympics tug of war. He's a young man and even though he mightn't admit it he's affected. It's not just brought him back to average golf but he in most rounds he's playing very badly. Take yesterday, he's 15 shots off the lead after just one day.

I haven't seen much analysis/criticism of his swing (well compared to what they do constantly with Tiger, say Chamblee etc). Is there something there? Or is it everything? Meaning his head/nerves/focus/tempo.

I think its more to do with 'off field' activity than clubs
A year back playing full time on the Euro tour may help him, but alas that wont happen as not enough off field cash to be made over this side of the pond

His total driving in 2013 (42nd) has been better than it was in 2012 (54th). And his 2013 GIR and 2012 GIR are virtually identical, his scrambling went from 33rd in 2012 to 150 in 2013. Which seems like a better area of his game to put the blame rather than his driver.

Looks clear-cut to me, is it this obvious to him?
Rotella needed to imho.

Somehow he let the whole "new Clubs" thing get inside his head. Likewise when u look at the putting stat they had last night, its all in his head.

I think the new clubs thing was just a handy excuse for him tbh

To be fair he does not make an issue out of the clubs,
I reckon he should never have left Chubby, his dad and all his buddies seems to have too much influence on the direction his career is taking.

Thats seems clear cut! I remember watching the PGA last year and he needed to scramble very well at times on the last day. Obviously he pulled away well at the end but without his A short game it wouldn't have been so easy.

I bet he misses his home in NI now, with the fancy short game area.

Its definitely a curious situation, there is a legal battle going on behind the scenes aswell over the split from the management company.

Maybe a 6/8 week period at the end of the season to sort everything out and begin next year raring to go might be the best for him.

His next goal really should be making sure he is ready both mentally and physically for next years Masters.
